1. just delete the "th_" after th last /




no idea what that is (also not my region of the country), but leaves and plant shape can be so variable, flowers and or fruit/seed pods/etc are a much better way to ID plants

7. Poison Ivy.......just kidding I think



I see three leaves and I start itching...

But maybe it's a small seedling from a bird gift.

Watch to see how it blooms but don't touch it...

8. It's absolutely, 100% not poison ivy.

It's definitely something in the pea family, related to the clovers. Leaf form is classic for a member of the Leguminosae/Fabaceae

2. Does it bloom?

When does it bloom? What colour? What does the bloom look like? It looks like something from the legume family.

4. It looks like it might have a bloom coming soon,

if I am seeing the picture right. If you know where the plant is and can locate it again, keep checking on it and get a picture of the flower. That will make it much easier.

5. It's probably one of the tick trefoils.

There are many species. Possibly showy tick trefoil, Desmodium canadense, although the leaves on that species are usually more pointed.
